Welcome to Curry Library's style guide for the Chicago Manual of Style.
This guide contains citation formatting and examples from the University of Chicago Press's citation style as outlined in the 17th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style.
Note: Curry Library Services do not include assistance with creating or double checking citations. This guide and other resources (such as manuals, handbooks, or databases) serve as generalized guiding resources for students to create their own citations in consultation with their instructor.
If you need assistance using these resources or have further questions, please refer to our Chicago Best Practices or Ask a Librarian.
